At Book Expo America, CD Baby president Brian Felsen interviewed the Peabody award-winning journalist and media analyst Brooke Gladstone. Gladstone hosts NPR’s On the Media and is co-author (with cartoonist Josh Neufeld) of The Influencing Machine, a book about the relationship of press and society.

In this clip, the two co-authors talk about their collaborative process, what the word “impossible” means, how an illustrator and writer can influence one another, and how occasional prose pages can work to diversify graphics-heavy books.
